Questions tagged [qutrit]

For questions related to quantum trits i.e. three-level (dimensional) quantum mechanical systems. They are higher dimensional analogues of qubits (aka quantum bits), which are two-level (dimensional) quantum mechanical systems.

What proportions of certain sets of PPT-two-retrit states are bound entangled or separable?

For two particular (twelve-and thirteen-dimensional) sets of two-retrit states (corresponding to 9 x 9 density matrices with real off-diagonal entries), I have been able to calculate the Hilbert-...

Computing with qutrits

I'm doing some calculations with qutrits and I need a unitary matrix $U$ that does the following: $$U|00\rangle = |12 \rangle - | 21\rangle $$ $$U|11\rangle = |20 \rangle - | 02\rangle $$ $$U|22\...

Why can a point in anti-de Sitter space be modeled as a logical qutrit and how is its error correction done?

This isn't my area but the recent Quanta article How Space and Time Could Be a Quantum Error-Correcting Code struck me as interesting. They mention: In their paper[1] conjecturing that holographic ...

Difference between 3 qubits, 2 qutrits & 1 six level qunit

What is the difference between 3 qubits, 2 qutrits and a 6th level qunit? Are they equivalent? Why / why not? Can 6 classical bits be super-densely coded into each?

Confusion regarding projection operator

Suppose we have a qutrit with the state vector $|\psi\rangle = a_0|0\rangle + a_1|1\rangle + a_2|2\rangle$, and we want to project its state onto the subspace having the basis $\{|0\rangle,|2\rangle\}$...

Why is the decomposition of a qubit-qutrit Hamiltonian in terms of Pauli and Gell-Mann matrices not unique?

If I have the $X$ gate acting on a qubit and the $\lambda_6$ gate acting on a qutrit, where $\lambda_6$ is a Gell-Mann matrix, the system is subjected to the Hamiltonian: $\lambda_6X= \begin{pmatrix}...

Are qutrits more robust to decoherence?

A string of $n$ qutrits has a state-space spanned by the $3^n$ different states $\lvert x \rangle $ for strings $x \in \{0,1,2\}^n$ (or $x \in \{-1,0,+1\}^n$, equivalently), while $n $ qubits can ...
